Sandee Farrell Monroe

June 29, 1969—Oct 6, 2018

On October 6, 2018, Sandee Farrell Monroe, our beautiful wife, mother, daughter, sister and dear friend passed from the earth into the loving arms of our father in heaven.

She was born on June 29, 1969 in Redding, Ca. She spent most of her life on the ranch she loved in Millville. She loved animals and would often bring the ones she found home. She spent many hours riding horses. She was proud that she was able to master her grandmother’s biscuit recipe. These were a necessity at any family gathering.

She was preceded in death by her father Melvin “Bud” Farrell.

Survivors include: Mother Marcie, Husband Mark, Son Adam, Brother Kenny and Sister Terri.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Shasta County Cattle Women’s Organization for their scholarship program or Think Pink.

Note: In July 2007, I wrote an article on Sandee when she became NVB Palo Cedro branch manager. Here are a few notes that are current and from the past article that I wanted to share. JL

Some of Sandee’s involvements were a board member of the Palo Cedro Youth Soccer and a U-8 soccer coach. She also helped with the marketing committee for the Palo Cedro Community Park; a member of the Palo Cedro Chamber of Commerce, volunteered first as chairperson for the bag assembly committee for Nor-Cal Think Pink and then later as board member; she was a member of the Millville Historical Society;  parade chairperson for the Millville Heritage Day Parade; and helped judge the Redding Rodeo Parade (horse portion) for several years.

Sandee told me during that interview, “My parents set a good example of getting involved in community activities. There’s always something new around the corner…I can’t seem to say no to area activities.”

Sandee’s families are the Farrells and Darrahs, Millville pioneers that have been in the area since the 1800s. Her parents, Bud and Marcie Farrell, live on their family cattle ranch with four generations. The Darrah Springs Fish Hatchery is named after Blalock’s great-great-grandfather and her great-grandfather, George Darrah, was a Shasta County Supervisor.
